Working Words: New Approaches in Japanese Studies
Digital Archive Online
ANNOUNCEMENT: PAPERS AVAILABLE ON LINE
“WORKING WORDS: NEW APPROACHES IN JAPANESE STUDIES”
Thirteen essays by scholars of Japan from a variety of humanities disciplines are now available on line through the Berkeley Center for Japanese Studies. Each essay takes a critical Japanese term and explores its movement through historical, literary and theoretical contexts. These essays were the product of workshops held over several years at Berkeley, Dartmouth and Georgetown to consider the state of the field of Japanese Studies and encourage interdisciplinary conversation. The concept of "Working Words" emerged as a simple but effective device for scholars to present some of the issues of their own work in a form that would be accessible and meaningful to scholars and students across the disciplines.
Winther-Tamaki, Bert: 洋画 / Yōga: The Western Painting, National Painting, and Global Painting of Japan, 2012
These essays were originally to be published in both paper and digital form as part of a University of California Press International and Area Studies Publications series. After peer review and acceptance of the volume, however, the series was terminated. The Josai University Review of Japanese Culture and Society plans to republish them together with other essays translated from Japanese.
This is an inherently open-ended project. Anyone interested in building upon it by creating new archives, please include a link to this one.
